Rexam Annual General Meeting 2006
Trading update

Rolf Borjesson, Rexam's Chairman, is due to make the following statement at
today's Annual General Meeting:

'Rexam has made a good start to the year given the continuing pressure on input
costs.  There has been very solid sales growth across the Group, particularly in
beverage cans, reflecting both the additional volume gains in the US and further
volume growth in Europe and South America.

The newly acquired businesses in our plastic packaging and beverage can
operations are being integrated according to plan.

It is too early to anticipate the full impact of the price increases being
implemented by our European beverage can operations. For the Group as a whole,
we currently expect Rexam to make further progress in 2006.'

                                                                   4 May 2006
